Release Depencency Status

Getting started

To get started using Bootstrap for Vanilla, either:

$ git clone kasperisager/vanilla-bootstrap bootstrap


The following instructions assume that you have already installed Node.js on your computer. If this is not the case, please download and install the latest stable release from the official Node.js download page. If you are using Homebrew, you can also install Node.js via the command line:

$ brew install node

Notice: It is important that you install Node in a way that does not require you to sudo.

Once you have Node.js up and running, you will need to install the local dependencies using npm:

$ npm install


Build - npm run build

Compiles all theme assets using Gulp. LESS stylesheets will be compiled to design/style.css and Javascripts will be concatenated and output to js/custom.js.

Watch - npm run watch

Watches the assets for changes and runs the appropriate Gulp tasks. Also starts a Livereload server that will push the changes to your Vanilla installation automatically.

Issue tracking

If you come across any bugs or if you have a feature request, please file an issue using the GitHub Issue tracker. Bootstrap for Vanilla won't be supported through http://vanillaforums.org so please stick to using GitHub for inquiries about bugs and feature requests. Thanks!
